Many thanks to Alex Jimenez for interviewing me for her site, Travel Fashion Girl, which is full of fantastic information from packing lists for every style of travel, to travel fashion tips as wells as do’s and don’ts! Her site is a Traveler’s Guide to Practical and Stylish Travel Gear.
I love that she said, “Not many women can wear travel clothing brands and still look perfectly polished. Lisa from We Said Go Travelis an exception to that statement.” I am honored to be interviewed and called polished by Alex. She also said, “I was taken aback not only by her enthusiastic sense of travel adventure, but also by her natural beauty inside and out.”
She asked me some great questions. Here is the first one:
1. How do your original travel clothing choices in 2008 compare with how you travel now?
In 2008 I only packed “easy to travel” clothes. We were going on a yearlong trip in South East Asia and George said I could only bring what I could carry. I packed very practical clothing including Exofficio underwear that were super durable and also Magellan type travel clothing for women.
When George saw what I packed for the trip he was shocked. He thought that it was outrageous that companies could sell clothes so unattractive regardless of what technological benefit they had. What’s the point of having efficient clothes if they’re just downright ugly? He had a good point.
